In the world of martial arts, all fighters have their way to fight. More “the game” is complex, less the fighter can be expressed at full capacity. Put the ego aside, put our thoughts aside. Get overwhelmed by the present moment. If we think before the hit, it’s already too late. By being in the present moment, we can detach from our conscience and get rid of fear, anger, stress… ‘Méditation’ – ‘Flow State’
In every fighting sport, boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, wrestling, JIU-Jitsu, mma, etc., we aim effectiveness of the movement. In the movement of the opponent, you can see its weaknesses. We take advantage on the position of his feet, the position of his hands, or the rhythm of the opponent and attack at the time deemed appropriate. By remaining fluid, without stress, relaxed, we can respond more quickly to the actions of the person facing us. Our actions must reflect his mistakes. We have to take full responsibility and accept the consequences of our actions by trusting our instincts.
Effective action will be defined in its simplicity.

Act and not react. Keep what is works and set aside what is not working. What does not work on someone can work on someone else. That’s why we need to be able to adapt to any opponent matter his fighting style.
The martial art is individual, all practitioners are different. Teaching is not fixed method, we need to adapt to the practitioner. For the teacher, know his student increases the chances of him showed what suits him, so he can speak as freely as possible. It’s like giving brushes, colors and technique to a painter that it creates its own painting. We teach the technique so that the practitioner is imbued with this technique so that there is no longer need to think before you perform the technique. The artist will be simple, spontaneous natural and authentic.
“In building a statue, a sculptor doesn’t keep adding clay to his subject. Actually, he keeps chiselling away at the inessentials until the truth of its creation is revealed without obstructions. Thus, contrary to other styles, being wise in Jeet Kune-Do doesn’t mean adding more; it means to minimize, in other words to hack away the unessential.” –Bruce Lee
